Seen in Montauk


I wonder if there is such a thing as a clam opening piano player?  If so, there's a job in Montauk for you.

Smart parrot!

Vintage Montauk Neon


Montauk, NY

Have you ever noticed that the older neon signs, never completely light up?  I think it adds to their charm.

Montauk Beach

Montauk, NY

I've always liked walking a beach early in the morning before the crowds arrive.

Ledge Light

New London, CT

Ledge Light, located at the mouth the Thames River has been a subject of my photos and posts here before.  I never seem to get quite close enough, even on the ferry, to take  what I would consider to be an adequate photo.  I do like how Ledge Light is silhouetted against the early morning sun in this photo.

Electric Boat

New London/Groton CT

Across the river from New London is the city of Groton, known as the Submarine Capitol of the World, since the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics Corp is located there.  EB has been building and repairing submarines for the US Navy since 1900.  Many of the current nuclear submarines in the Navy were built right here.  Currently under construction here are the latest fast attack submarines known as "Virginia Class" submarines.  I'm not sure which submarine is currently under construction here, but my best bet would the SSN786 Illinois.

New London Harbor

New London, CT

One sees New London with a whole new perspective from the deck of a ferry.  The Coast Guard Barque Eagle was in port this weekend.  Looking closely you might be able to see the Shore Line East commuter train located in front of the red, brick Union Station.  One can see cars in a nearby parking lot.  I really needed an airplane in this photo so I could show all four modes of transportation, but I had to settle for only three.
